How can I restore the rubber around my car windows?

It looks terrible right now but I'd rather fix it myself if that's possible (since it's usually cheaper). Can you make rubber look new again?

Yes, you can restore the rubber around your car windows yourself! Here’s how:
  • First, you’ll need to wash the window molding with warm water and mild cleanser, like dish soap. Mix equal parts soap and water, then wet a clean cloth and gently wipe the rubber.
  • Next, saturate a sponge with rubber or vinyl conditioner and wipe the molding thoroughly.
  • Once you’ve worked the conditioner into the rubber, let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before applying a second coat. When you’re done, you’ll want to leave your windows down for about four hours.
  • Lastly, you might need to clean your windows..
While you’re waiting for the conditioner to dry, take a couple of minutes to look at the Jerry app. Jerry will help you find the lowest rates on your car insurance policy, so you can save money on your monthly bills, as well as on routine car repairs.
